Why Choose Us?

That is why we have created a NO Risk Franchise that leaves you in control and no financial risk to you. We want you to join and stay with us not because the contract term says you must but because you want to, and you love what we do for you, and we will not recruit another driving Instructor in your area unless we have to turn away business because you are too busy and need support. We do not have any sales teams so don’t worry just our family members explaining what we do.

97% of Driving Instructors that started with us on our trial period decided to stay with us. The other 3% left due to personal circumstances and not because of the service we provided. Filling your diary quickly is our highest priority and we will GUARANTEE a minimum number of pupils that will be given to you.

Why Should ADIs embrace a Driving Instructor Franchises in Ramsbottom?

All newly qualified driving instructors have to determine if they will go the driving instructor franchise route or start their own business from scratch. There are positives to both sides of the argument, so the option you go for at the end of the day will be dependent on your particular situation. Running your own driving school comes with some unique challenges. Every ADI relies on recommendation for their supply of pupils. It takes time to build the reputation and engage in the right level of marketing to make your driving school recommendations work.

Drawing pupils could require building a social media presence, building a website and spending a decent sum on marketing in various media. Many ADIs do not have what it takes to draw new pupils in the early days of their driving school and make a profit, so for this reason many struggle. Joining a franchise like the Smart Drive UK Ramsbottom driving instructor franchise, on the other hand, makes it possible to start earning right away and ensure a full diary as fast as possible.

Choosing the Ramsbottom Driving Instructor Franchise to work with

Your decision on the driving instructor franchise in Ramsbottom to go with must not be made lightly.

You can’t afford to choose carelessly as you could be staring at a long-term contract that would require forfeiting hefty sums to break. Big national companies are attractive because of their popularity, but local driving instructor franchise providers could serve you better.

Pupils in the area will want to go with a local company that has been around for a while instead of a big name company with offices far away. After your franchise agreement, the steady supply of work is the next important factor when picking a driving instructor franchise.

Will I be employed by Smart Drive UK?
No. Both independent driving schools and franchised driving instructors tend to be self-employed in the UK. Driving instructors have the benefit of being their boss.

You choose your work hours and organise your schedule to fit around your life. Driving instructors value the flexibility of the hours and the schedule; flexibility that is found in few other careers.

The nature of self-employed businesses is that the more you are willing to invest in terms of your time and energy the more you will get out in terms of financial rewards and job satisfaction.
